I have a eur7711150 remote for a panasonic radio that was my dads.. i cant figure out how to change channels on the radio.. hate to sound so stupid but there doesnt seem to be a tuner or a seek button


The EUR7711150 remote works for several different Panasonic CD stereo systems. To switch between AM and FM, press the Tuner/Band button. (If you were in another mode, you'll need to press the Tuner/Band button once to get to the Tuner mode and then toggle if needed.) Then if you press Play Mode (above Repeat to the left of the number keys), you can toggle between Preset and Manual. In Preset, the rewind and fast forward buttons select between your preset stations. Alternatively, you can set the presets to numerical values and touch the appropriate number button. (Touch the >=10 button first to access Memories 10-15.) If you are on Manual, the rewind and fast forward buttons will let you move up and down between the frequencies. Pressing and holding Rewind or Fast Forward for a moment will let the radio scan to the next frequency in that direction with a signal.

The CD button enables the CD or MP3 disc player mode. AUX and Tape are for external audio devices and cassette tape mode, respectively.

These comments are based on using the remote with the Panasonic SA-PM19. Please add a comment with the specific model of your Panasonic radio if you need additional assistance.

I hope this helps.

check to see if it fast forwards or rewinds. If one or none of these work, the drive belt has come off the cassette drive motor and it needs to be taken to a repair shop

Sound in only one speaker


With a music CD playing, and the volume on the SA-404 set to a lower (but audible) level, try the following steps while closely listening for music from the speaker that is not functioning (some crackling or screeching sounds may be heard when removing and reconnecting the cables).

Remove & reconnect the traditional RCA type audio cables that originate from the CD player at the connection point at the rear of the SA-404 several times. If the cables can be removed from the CD player, do it to that end too if no music is heard. If the audio cable is a single coaxial dolby digital type carefully do the same thing to it - at both ends if needed, too. The optical cables usually don't fail the way you describe so if they're being used it may be a problem with the CD player.

You might also try moving the RCA type cables to a different input (try TAPE or another available input) if the previous steps don't solve the problem. If the problem is present on the new input (TAPE or another available input), the issue lies with the cables or the CD player. Try connecting with NEW cables to the CD input. If still failing - try TAPE input again. If still not working, I would feel comfortable saying the CD player has some sort of problem.

Please rate this reply if it was helpful to you. Good luck!

Sanyo vcr player vwm 900, tape won't COME OUT.


This needs a little bit of care but essentially you will need to unplug the power from the VCR then do the following:

Remove the top cover
Then with the front of the VCR facing you look to see if any of the tape is wound around a large metallic silver drum, that is tilted upward and is not flat, at the rear of the tape casing. If so then it means that it has wound around the drum and you will need to retrieve the tape to allow the eject mechanism to work. Do not touch the shiny polished part of the drum. To get the tape in usually means that you have to locate a plastic or metal cog wheel, usually on the right side of the VCR that you can turn with your finger. This makes the VCR motor move. Also there is one that works the tape eject mechanism. If you can find the one to wind in the tape before working on the one for the tape eject than you stand a chance of rescuing the tape, if not then it will get some damage. Don’t worry about turning the cog wheels with your finger as you can do very little harm to the VCR with no tools involved and no power on. Moving the cogs this way will only cause very small movements with the tape motor and eject so you will need to be a little patient and you will soon see what is happening. Once remove run a cleaning tape through the VCR before you use it again. With the limited space available her it is difficult to give you much more info.

BOTH doors jammed on TC-WE605S


Some tape decks are belt-drive. If the belt is worn, it will either break or jump the cog and you will experience these kinds of problems. That's what happened with my Sony ES deck recently and I couldn't even eject the tape until I got the belt replaced.

Tape will not turn


The more detailed the description of the problem, the better for diagnosing the root cause. Thanks.

It sounds like you have a couple of problems. I'll address them as you have them numbered above.

1. Decks typically have belts to drive the various 'reel' mechanisms. Therefore, they can slip without breaking anything inside the machine or the tape. Your first symptom leads me in that direction.

2. That it migrated is mysterious, unless Sony is using a common motor to handle both decks' reel duties.

3. This symptom may have something to do with the root cause of both sides jamming...

Do the cassette well doors come off, say, for cleaning? Could they be dislodge? If so, they may have something to do with the jamming problems in # 1 and #2 as the doors play a part in positioning the cassette and holding it in place against the reel motor cogs. How do the doors operate with NO tape inserted?

Does it take excessive force to close the door only WITH a tape? make sure the tape is fully seated before closing the door. The capstans (directly below each reel cog) have to engage through the small holes at the lower edge of the cassette. They should be straight and clean. Any dirt or oxide on them will cause problems as these are what move the tape at the precise speed necessary for good playback or recording.
---

My hipshot recommendation, otherwise, is to look around inside the cassette wells very carefully for any foreign matter, debris, dust bunnies.

Do you maintain the deck as recommended?

Tape stuck in player - error code e13 shows


I just got a tape unstuck myself. Everytime I would hit eject it would make a clicking noise.

Here is what I did:
First I watched these videos to remove the radio.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29MTa4FLjtk&feature=channel

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqvk_PNo9Kg&feature=channel

Then I unscrewed the bottom panel of the radio.
Unscrew the brass screws holding in the cassette player portion of the radio.
Now flip the cassette player over to see your tape, etc.
When I pressed the eject button, I noticed a little motor with a worm gear would move a a gear which moved several other gears until it eventually moved a black gear which has a little post that moves the metal arm which moves back when pushing in a tape and moves forward when ejecting a tape. But I would get a clicking sound which seemed to be due to one gear trying to move a stuck gear.
I forgot the exact details of how I managed to get the tape out, but when I did get it out I noticed when I turned on the radio, it would act like it was trying to play a tape. But when it found out it couldn't, it would try to eject but would fail once again with the gear clicking sound.
I think I tried moving the black post on the black gear that moves the arm that pushes the tape out. Eventually I got to the point where the arm was pushed forward like it should be when a tape is ejected. At that point I was able to insert and eject a tape without any problems.

Skull candies only work when i move the cord for a little bit


Sounds like one of the wires got pinched and broke. Check the wire for any spots where the insulation ripped open and tape them up with electrical tape and try it again. If that doesn't work you'll have to buy a new pair of headphones.
